With faint echoes of Pudhiya Mugham’s Netru illadha, Hind mere jind eventually plays out like a mish-mash of a lot of likeable and familiar sounds and phrases that do not converge to hit the bullseye. In Sachin, Sachin, Rahman cleverly integrates the now-iconic stadium chant set to a punchy, and often overdone and manipulative rhythm, all the while Sukhwinder Singh doing his predictable thing. Rahman junior, A.R.Ameen and Anjali Gaikwad are wonderfully dextrous with their vocals in Mard Maratha, particularly the former; the actual song seems more like an after-thought on top of that. Rahman’s Sachin soundtrack is 40, run-out.
